Concrete Stamping in Bakersfield, CA

Stamped Concrete Contractors

Stamped concrete has become increasingly popular in recent years, and with good reason. A solid concrete surface is an investment that will last a lifetime if properly taken care of. It can be applied to interior and exterior hardscape elements such as walkways, patios, pool decks, etc. This type of concrete gives you the look of real stone at a fraction of the cost.

Decorative concrete is made from the same ingredients as regular concrete, but instead of being poured into one big slab, we use a stamping process to place a design on the surface of the concrete. This allows us to create a variety of textures and patterns that will complement any outdoor living space. The design could be anything from a simple brick pattern to an intricate tile-like design. The cost of this concrete depends on how complex of a design you want stamped onto the surface. Simple designs are usually less expensive than complex ones.

We are proud to offer services that are unparalleled in quality and craftsmanship. We have a team of concrete finishers and retaining wall contractors. Each one of our employees is carefully selected to meet the standards we have set for ourselves. We have strict requirements for all of our staff. They must have the right attitude, a strong work ethic, the ability to communicate well, and they must love their work. These qualities are necessary to deliver the best possible results.

Decorative Concrete Options

Color – There are two main methods of coloring a concrete driveway in Bakersfield. By adding pigment directly to the mix, a finisher can create a solid color throughout the patio. Alternatively, by applying a colored stain before the concrete sets, a unique marbled effect can be created. By mixing different hues of stain and concrete powder, we can create custom shades of concrete that simulate natural materials and complement the landscape of your property. Concrete colors can also help highlight certain features on your property. A dark-colored concrete can make the most of a swimming pool or outdoor fire pit. A bright-colored concrete can be used to draw attention to a water feature or sculpture.

Pattern – There are two different types of stamping: electric and hand tooling. Both methods create a beautiful textured surface that looks like natural stones such as flagstone or slate. The main difference between electric and hand tools is the depth of the imprints that are left behind in the concrete mix. Hand tools produce deeper grooves than electric tools. Also, electric tools are used for large projects because they can be operated by one person and make clean edges on corners and curves, but hand tools are usually more affordable for small projects.

Shape – Concrete is a very versatile material. It can be used to create anything from a simple slab to an intricate arch. A number of factors determine how complicated the final product will be. The first factor is the type of concrete. Some types of concrete are more fluid, which allows for more detailed shapes in your finished product. The second factor is the kind of mold. A good mold should be strong and not leak any concrete during the curing process. We will make sure that your mold has the ability to hold its form throughout the curing process, so you do not end up with a misshapen structure.

Concrete vs. Paving Stones

Cost – Concrete is the affordable option for many of our customers. From a practical perspective, it is more affordable than pavers because you can avoid the cost of labor and additional materials required to complete a project. No matter how large or small the job, the concrete installation process remains the same. There is no need to measure and cut each individual paver; instead, you simply pour concrete into place and smooth it flat once it has set.

Appearance – Concrete has an industrial look that appeals to many homeowners, especially those who are looking for a contemporary design. But if you are looking for a more decorative option, you might be interested in paving stones. Pavers are available in a wide variety of colors and sizes that can be arranged in almost any pattern. Concrete is limited to a small range of styles and is generally poured into preformed molds that do not require much customization.

Maintenance – Concrete is definitely easier to maintain than pavers because you do not have to worry about the paver joints filling up with dirt and debris, which can be more difficult to clean. With concrete, you are able to sweep, hose down or pressure wash a surface with ease. You might also need to apply concrete sealer every 3 years.
